Synopsis

Product Description
Rule Britannia! Stirring Songs & Patriotic Music Music chosen for its thrill factor: from trumpets and drums to soaring choral voices, this programme has a 'Last Night of the Proms' feel. It features the great and the good of English music of the past including Handel, Holst, Elgar and Walton. We unfurl a splendid tapestry of British music that will reveal our innate pride and patriotism. It spans the centuries from the Restoration to our second Elizabethan age and features music, which is dear to the hearts of everyone who inhabits 'this sceptr'd isle'. We celebrate our heritage and heroism through the imagination of composers to whom this country meant a great deal - music, which carries an echo of history, and with which Britons celebrate their great national occasions, both solemn and joyful.
